Meanwhile, they rifled through my 11 year old niece's purse at the gate last week.

They obviously didn't drink the water

Two hours?

Any evidence will be inadmissible.

I'm guessing they were too busy looking for bottles and flasks.

Hell, I would confess the first time around on that ride.

No one can survive 2 hrs of that with their sanity intact.

I once had to work the State Fair.  The booth was next to the Middle Earth Players, a ren fair group.  For a week and a half I had to listen to the same merry songs every hour on the hour.  My manager came by around the end of the first week to drop off supplies and heard Dave and I singing the songs perfectly and staring at him with the crazy eyes.  He brought us a radio to play over the singers.  A few hours of the local classic rock station helped return our sanity.

I heard they just kept playing "Shave and a Haircut" over and over without finishing it off....

I'd think the guy would have a cyanide capsule just for that possibility.

I would assume after 2 hours on It's a Small World, he will no longer be fit to stand trial.


In all seriousness however, what law is there against dry ice in a soda bottle?

And I always get at least two flasks in. How else can you survive Disney?

I have a buddy that had to sit on that ride for over two hours when he was a kid because it broke down.  He's not right to this day.

Jack Bauer and that ride combined could get ANYTHING from any suspect.

Have you ever done the dry ice in a bottle thing? It makes a bomb. A sudden, explosive release of gases accompanied by a deafening report.

I'm going to assume that whatever law prohibits detonating a bomb in Disneyland would apply here. The actual mechanics of the device seem secondary -- there are lots of different ways to make a bomb.

These things were all the rage when I was in college in the early 90's. Seems like for a few months I heard one go off a night back in the student neighborhoods. Guys would drive through and just throw them out of the windows of cars or set them off in their back yards.

Just thought of it as a science novelty, no one ever really cared.

I understand. I was stuck on that ride with my dad when I was 16 right next to the part where they sing that song for three hours. I ended up getting out of the boat and walking over some of the ride to escape. I was almost kicked out of the park until I told them that what I just experienced would be considered cruel and unusual punishment in some countries. They came to agree with me.

I had to sit there, mere feet from the exit, for 40 minutes one time.  I was about to disembark but I kept getting "that look" from the wife.

"Just try to relax", she said.

"THEN SHUT OFF THE farkING MUSIC BEFORE I GO ON A MARIONETTE KILLING SPREE!"

I hate that farking ride.

Sorry about that...

The real story here is that you graduated despite being completely retarded.

So what defines an air based explosive from a over-filled balloon?

I'm completely serious in my question, as I'm trying to find out where the law says the line is.  Is it based on PSI?  Expansion rate?  Ect?

It's a fair question, and that which I don't know the answer. I suspect that the "line" will be a bit fuzzy -- few people would consider a popped balloon to be a bomb, but a chunk of dry ice sealed in a two liter bottle will make a noise that could cause ear damage, can disperse shards of plastic capable of causing harm, and can cause property damage based on how it is placed.

In terms of judging whether a crime has been committed, I think intention has a lot to do with it. Some teenagers blowing off a dry ice bomb in the woods or on the farm is a harmless prank. Dropping one in a Disneyland trashcan, less so.

I'd rather be stuck on the "Epic Mickey" version for two hours.

Thanks for the help.  Not that I didn't make a couple "overpowered balloons" back in my school days out in the Idaho desert, but I've always wondered if they were illegal and why.  Thanks for the help.


FYI,  I asked a EOD Master tonight, and he didn't know either.
